Developer Blog - Upcoming Expansion Features

By Julia (nitocris83) | Fri 13 Jan 2017 09:00:00 AM PST

Note: This blog is for content that will be available on the Preview Shard soon!

After your adventures in the frozen North, it’s time to come back home to Neverwinter. Hang up your cloak, have your laundry done, and tuck away your newfound treasures. Enjoy the warmth, both in weather and the welcome of old friends like Knox. It’s a time to relax and reflect, and to drink a toast to absent friends. But heroes in Neverwinter never rest for long… Trouble is stirring, rumors of magic and uprisings fill the taverns. And now Lord Neverember is calling to him adventurers to help reclaim the old River District. It’s time to pull the boots back on and see what’s happening in your city first hand. 

Let’s dig into what we’ll see in this new expansion:


New Adventure Zone: The River District - Lord Neverember has made good on his promise to expand the city of Neverwinter by reclaiming the neighborhoods of the old River District. Once home to rich merchants, nobles, temples, and wizards, it is filled with lost treasures. The Protector is looking for adventurers like you to help him secure the port and lands. By establishing guard posts to keep the areas safe, adventures can delve into excavation sites of buried mansions and crypts in search of riches. But the heroes are not the only ones searching for these treasures! This Adventure Zone comes with a new campaign with alternate paths for completion.

More Treasure Hunting! - The River District is full of possibilities and hidden treasures! All you have to do is find a map…

Ships Ahoy! - The opening up of the River District port means lots of opportunities for trading. Protect treasure caravans and barter with travelling merchants willing to trade fresh supplies of Voninblood for resources from the River District.

The Illusionist’s Gambit! - A crazy skirmish into the mind of a mad Illusionist. Be ready for anything- then play it again and be ready for something else!

Spellplague Caverns Returns! - Refurbished and remastered, we’ve cleared out all the bodies of adventurers gone by, and reopened both standard and epic versions. New challenges, new boss fights and of course new epic loot. The Mimic King compels you!

For everything mentioned above and more, we’ll be releasing blogs every week from now until release! Check back regularly for detailed blogs including:


Looking forward to seeing you back home in Neverwinter!
